Another cruise operator,world is saturated with cruise ships, some ports can't cope with numerous visits by these vessels with thousands on board and they do not boost local economies with there cash.The first of four Branson building,at least no kids and fun park themes.

I'm sure that Clive will give us his opinion on the SCARLET LADY!

Externally I'm not a fan but after seeing the recent internal images I must say that I've changed my opinion after initially seeing the artist impression's.

Would I consider taking a cruise with Virgin Voyages, probably not but it's good to see another mainstream cruise line enter the very competitive cruise market and I personally wish them well.

Very true Sean. Not quite to my taste. A bit too dark and a bit 'bare'. I wonder the wisdom about building a 2,700 passenger. If they went for a pair of small vessels.... say 1,200 would be easy.

They make much about nothing. 1. 'Adult'. Saga does that! 18 year old are not 'adults'! 2. All inclusive. Many ships are this way. 3. No dress code. Apart from Saga and Cunard, who does? 4. No buffet. WHAT? Better have a couple of the restaurants are open 24 hours. 5. Hammock on the balcony. AIDA does.

Not much 'deck space' for 2.700 pax. If the sun is on the port side, the other side does not get any. A lot of 'porthole' cabins and inside cabins need deck space... that is what the younger will want... for sun.

The cabins, as I said, not to my taste, but I do like the layout and the idea of converting bed to settee is good. A lot work for the stewards though.

For a ship that has four engines, the funnels are more OTT and as bad as Titanic! The funnel casing... way too big.

The hull... ah, I like the vertical stem. Reminds me of Queen of Bermuda... and in grey too!

Not a good time to come into service with this virus effecting the cruise industry,Two days ago RCI have the Spectrum of the seas in Sydney diverted from Asia to undertake cruises. The first of which will sail with Aussie fire fighters who did great work recently getting FREE cruise in coming days.
